TAKESHI NONAKA DEPUTY GENERAL MANAGER, INFORMATION SYSTEM DEPARTMENT • AEROSPACE DIVISION, SUBARU CORPORATION

The story

As the Deputy General Manager of Information Systems at Subaru Aerospace, Mr. Nonaka began the search for a BI solution nearly a decade ago. In a highly specialized industry, Mr. Nonaka needed a solution that he could rely on. After testing multiple products, he found the solution with Qlik. Among his many goals, he wanted to cut lead-time in an extended development process. Now, he’s able to unify disparate information across departments with a holistic view, and bring a new level of efficiency to the organization.

The highlights

  1. The development process in the aerospace industry is time-consuming, but keeping track of key details—from start to finish—is now possible thanks to Mr. Nonaka’s team and Qlik.

  2. In an industry where 20K parts in design can become 40K parts in practice, Mr. Nonaka is able to reduce the reoccurring issue of over-ordering parts during the development process.

  3. Cross-department friction is minimized by the unified view of inventory and manufacturing processes Qlik provides the teams.

  4. Mr. Nonaka and his team have quick, easy access to clear data and insights that make sense by using Qlik—just one of the reasons they preferred it over competitors.

  5. With improved compliance rates for deadline delivery powered by Qlik, Mr. Nonaka helped unify information throughout the organization.
